Please join us tomorrow, Tuesday, April 26th at 10:30 am in the 3rd floor computer lab of the Augusta Public Library for the presentation, Preserving Your Family Heirlooms.

In celebration of American Library Association’s Preservation Week, April 24-April 30, the Georgia Heritage Room welcomes Lauren Virgo, Registrar for the Augusta Museum of History. Ms. Virgo will teach us tricks of the trade for protecting our family treasures from the deleterious effects of light, dust, insects, and aging. Items discussed will be documents such as letters and diaries; photographs and scrapbooks; and textiles, such as quilts and vintage clothes. By learning simple preservation techniques our family heirlooms can be saved for generations to come. Please call the Georgia Heritage Room for details, 706-826-1511.

Don't forget to join us tomorrow at 6:00 pm for a very special presentation by Ms. Paula Wright, a descendant of the Edgefield, SC Ramey Family.

At the time of her grandmother’s death Ms. Wright inherited a genealogical treasure, a box filled with over 500 photographs documenting eight generations. Since childhood, Ms. Wright has been interested in her incredible family story, but with the gift of the photographs she knew that the story needed to be told to the wider world. Please join us in the auditorium of Augusta Public Library on the evening of Thursday, April 21 as Ms. Wright unravels the story of the courageous marriage in 1872 of her white, third great-grandfather Judge William Ramey to former Edgefield slave, Kittie Simkins, and the generations which followed, including those who made their homes in Augusta, Georgia. This event is free and open to the public. Please call 706-826-1511 for details.

An exhibit featuring photographs, documents, and family heirlooms will run in conjunction with the presentation, so please visit the Georgia Heritage Room on the third floor of the library to learn more about this fascinating family.

The Secret Lives of Women: Researching Female Ancestors Using the Sources They Left Behind
How do you research the women in your family? In some of the same ways you research men, but you also have to consider what documents and items were left behind by women. In honor of Women’s History Month, the Georgia Heritage Room will host this free Legacy Family Tree Webinar with genealogist and women’s history scholar, Ms. Gena Philibert-Ortega. This lecture will go over the specific heirlooms women left behind including signature quilts, community cookbooks, journals and diaries. The Webinar will take place in the computer lab on the third floor of the Augusta Public Library at 823 Telfair Street. As space is limited please call 706-826-1511 to register.
